About Michael Hughes and Alison Marshall

Our dear friend Alan built the Starship Beach House in 1991 and infused it with a wonderful spirit, much like his own. The beach here is graced with gentle waves and is a great place for long walks and shelling, kayaking and swimming. It's a perfect spot to escape and relax at the beach. starshipmexico@gmail.com

Michael Hughes and Alison Marshall purchased this House in 2016

Why Michael Hughes and Alison Marshall chose Las Conchas

This house has a beautiful beach setting, privacy, spectacular views, comfortable furnishings and is just ten minutes away from town (Puerto Penasco).

What makes this House unique

The decks of this house are magical. If your timing is right you can sit on the roof deck and watch the sun set at one end of the beach and the full moon rise on the other, with the Sea of Cortez in front of you. Down below, sitting under the palapa is THE perfect place to watch the waves, read, sip a beverage and enjoy the ocean. Please note: This is a perfect place to enjoy the beach but the Las Conchas HOA prohibits renters bringing and/or using ATV's in the Las Conchas community.

                                                              I seriously just cannot say enough. This is the perfect place to come for complete rejuvenation and relaxation. We came for our Spring Break in early April. The weather was a perfect 75-80 degrees. The views are out of this world, you go to sleep and wake up with the sound of the ocean, and the house itself has such an authentic Mexico feeling - it is simply perfect. They have thought of just about everything you will need. We found the kitchen perfectly stocked, and all the spices so helpful after buying some fresh fish down at the fish market. This was our first trip to Puerto Penasco, and I can say that I felt completely safe in the Las Conchas community. My teenage son said, upon our arrival at the Starship, "Mom, you nailed it." Our beach - and it feels like your private slice of beach - was quiet and serene - nothing like the crowded beach we saw down by the resorts. I'm pretty picky with cleanliness and I literally found NOTHING that wasn't fresh and clean. The king bed in the master was extremely comfortable. And we enjoyed the little DVD library each night with our teenage boys, watching a family movie. We also had a great night up at the fire pit on the rooftop - that will be a fun memory. My husband loved that his truck fit in the garage, and was able to stay out of the sun. Now, lets talk about the decks and all the doors that go outside. There's like a million of them - which makes everyone feel so connected to the outside no matter where you are in the house. And then you go out to the many different outside living spaces and all you see and hear is the ocean. It's really too hard to put into words, but it definitely takes your breath away. Finally, I have to add that we've stayed in lots of HomeAway rentals, and I've never had any owner as communicative and responsive as Michael and Alison. They were always there to answer a question before booking, before we left for our trip giving us suggestions/recommendations, and also there to make sure we were settled and having a good time the day we arrived. When we visit this little beach town again, there is no question we will return to the Starship.

                                                              We will return!

                                                              What a special house! Just like in the photos! Balconies to die for, views for days, very comfortable for our stay of two couples and one tweenager. We enjoy trying new places every time we visit Rocky Point, but it will be hard to return and stay anywhere else from now on! Lots of fun was had over the holiday weekend cooking shrimp and scallops from the fish market in the well-appointed kitchen, riding the banana boats that troll the beach looking for passengers ($5 cash, hold on tight!), enjoying fresh oysters and manta ray quesdaillas from the women's cooperative oyster farms in the estuary just past Las Conchas, and so much more. Mainly, though, we didn't want to leave the house because it was dreamy. Alison was super responsive and I appreciate their support of local charitable organizations. Thank you!

                                                              Our family just returned home from four nights in Rocky Point. We have vacationed there a handful of times. Renting the Starship was by far the best experience. The house is clean with many, many extra amenities. The three different balconies are fun for relaxing and hanging with the family. The beach and sunsets are beautiful!!! We will definitely be back again!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you Shawn for sharing some of the pleasure that you had staying at the Starship. We hope that you will return sometime soon for another look at the spectacular view from the balcony.


                                                              Great place for the family

                                                              Robert W.

                                                              Our kids loved this location. The beach was relatively quiet and we were able to relax and watch the kids run and play all day from our vantage point on the deck and at the cabana. We ran into a couple small snags along the way and Michael and Alison were very easy to work with. There are a couple large locations on either side of the property but this worked to our advantage as we had great neighbors who became weekend friends and the kids enjoyed playing together.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Robert, it sounds like you had the kind of time at the beach that will keep you smiling for awhile. We are glad that staying at the Starship factored in positively for you. Kudos to you for making the best of it.

                                                              Fantastic Property

                                                              The Starship was an exceptional experience. The property is beachfront with fantastic views. The sunrise and sunset were spectacular from both the sun deck and upper deck off of the main living room. We have stayed in Las Conchas for many years in many different lovely homes BUT The Starship had all of the amenities that made our stay so comfortable. The bathrooms were spotless and the showers worked beautifully. The bedding was lovely and the kitchen was awesome, having all of the utensils that you need for beachfront cooking. We had an amazing vacation and can't wait to rent again! Thank you Michael and Alison.

                                                              Thank you Lori for your descriptive review of your stay at the Starship! The joy that you described is much the same joy that we have when we’re there. We hope that you will return for another dose sometime soon as we would gladly welcome you back!


                                                              Another great stay at the Starship

                                                              Went down just after the new year for several days. It is a great time of year down there- no crowds, shrimp season in full swing, perfect weather and we even swam. It's a little chilly but beautiful once you are in. The house is in perfect condition and has everything you need. Perfect for families or small groups of friends. Definitely our favorite house on the beach in Las Conchas. Thanks Michael and Alison!
